Allison Kyler Does Britney Spears Better Than Britney Spears?

Britney Spears Femme Fatale coverAccording to TMZ, Britney Spears needed a dancing body double to step in while she was filming her upcoming music video "Hold It Against Me" -- and the faux Britney is rumored to be Britney's stand-in Allison Kyler.

The rumor mill goes on to say that the video's director Jonas Akerlund got fed up with Britney because she couldn't master the dance routines, which sent Britney off crying by Day 2 and Allison doing the fill-in work.

Britney's peeps, of course, deny the accusations. But why deny? I mean, she has a body double for a reason, right? We can't really expect her not to use one.

Even if this is true, do we really care? I'm not sure I do. I mean, we already know she lip syncs sometimes, and heck, can't artists get a little break once in awhile? It's gotta be tough to be the voice, the face, and the moves all the time on any given day. I'm exhausted just thinking about it. At some point in your pop star success, aren't you allowed to have a team to help you out? Maybe ... or maybe I'm going too easy on the woman.

Dance, Britney, dance! {whip crack!}

Britney Spears' rep completely denies the claims anyway:

The accusations could not be further from the truth. Britney worked extremely hard on this video and rehearsed for six weeks prior to shooting. Fans will immediately see how inaccurate these claims are once they see the video.

And Akerlund, the director, denies the rumor as well:

(Britney's) been great throughout the entire process ... I've been around long enough to know when an artist gives it their all, and to me it doesn't get better than this.

This video is gonna be f**king awesome. It's all Britney.

Hmmm, perhaps we'll have to wait and see the video to judge for ourselves.

Britney's new album will hit stores in March. Spears shared the new album news (and the peek at the album cover above!) in a series of tweets on her Twitter earlier today:

I've poured my heart and soul into this album over the last 2 years. I've put everything I have into it.

This album is for you, my fans, who have always supported me and have stuck by me every step of the way!  I love you all!

Sexy and Strong.

Dangerous yet mysterious

Cool yet confident!
